Transfer Start Benefits
Being part of the Transfer START program gives you special benefits, such as free tutoring, structured study groups and evening and weekend programming. Plus, you'll get to know the campus, your classmates, and what it’s like to be in college before other incoming transfer students!
As a Transfer START participant, you have the opportunity to build community and assure yourself a strong start at NC State. All Transfer START students will connect and build community through enrichment activities. Students will have the opportunity to participate in numerous optional programs from NC State campus resources such as the Center for Student Leadership, Ethics, and Public Service and Campus Recreation, or off campus activities at the local mall and restaurants.
Start earning your college credits early. Transfer START participants are required to take 5 credit hours towards their major, but have the option to take up to 8 during the summer session.
Transfer START understands the diversity of learning. Transfer START aims to help all students find what success is for them and how they can achieve it at NC State. During START, students will be assigned a mentor. Mentors are current upper classman that also began their career at NC State as a transfer student. Mentors work with individuals on a one-on-one basis to answer any questions and get students on the path to attaining their goals. With individual attention given to students by Transfer START staff members and the student’s specific college faculty, Transfer START participants are able to put their dreams into focus at NC State and beyond to create their plan of success.
